About Nils Westdal – Composer, musician, and producer, Nils Westdal finds a mainline output through his nom de plume ten72. In a time of ready-made beats and stock electronic samples being used on a daily basis as well as the typically recycled genres found in the media, ten72 offers up a distinctive quality and honesty within his compositions. After many years of performing, writing and producing with some of the best that this planet has produced, a refined version of past decades come to a meeting in every song.
